What is your favorite building material? Opinions vary, and that is understandable since there are many different properties to take into consideration. If appearance is high on your list, then wood might be your choice. While wood is one of the more expensive materials you could choose, as well as one of the highest maintenance options, it is still very popular. A home with wood roofing will usually look very cozy and almost fairy-tale like. You will need to keep up a good maintenance schedule to keep that investment from being ruined, however. If it were to be infested with wood boring insects, they could quickly turn your roof into swiss cheese. If there is water that sits on it for a period of time, it could encourage mold and moss growth or cause it to rot. If you have a wildfire nearby, embers could float and land on your roof and spread the fire, especially if it has been a long time since it was treated with a flame retardant. As you can see, there is a lot to consider with wood roofing, but if you are willing to do the work, it can be a beautiful option.
